    Americanizing the natives, this is what Obama is talking about, americans interfering with long standing ways of life suitable to their needs and livelihood. Laundering them with gifts and things they have no use for or will stand the test of time by their own productive means.

    Its known that this kind of lavishing wealth on people of poverty does them more harm than good, they don't know what to do with other people wealth, and its an unsustainable process demeaning them and their culture that has survived a thousand years longer than our own. They are happy with having nothing, why can't americans grasp that simplicity is happiness. They don't need diet cokes, cookies, or ice cream, its an unhealthy diet. And they have a bigger medicine chest than any american home so what this man is offering is platitude and contempt thinking his way of life is better than their way of life.

    Great story. Great project. I hope they have helped the people learn new farming skills or whatever the area provides for people to achieve for themselves. It is wonderful that the visits there do so much in enhanced perspective for the visitors. Thanks "Tall Gringo" and Lee Benson for sharing.
